Carmenère is Chile's figurehead. A Bordeaux grape variety that was rediscovered in Chile in the 1980s after dying out in Europe during the 19th-century phylloxera plague is making a brilliant comeback here. Because in the sun-drenched Maipotal, the complexity and intense color of this grape variety can fully develop.

The Lafken Carménère convinces with a round taste, low acidity and elegant tannins. Nevertheless, it impresses with a piquant and very fruity aroma with Maqui, liquorice and a hint of cinnamon.
